Andy Reynolds dba Popular Publicity is a book, music, film, event and lifestyle publicity, as well as an expert in LGBT media worldwide. He knows people who want to know you and will present your book, film, event or service with understanding, wit, and, when appropriate, humor. Placements include The New York Times, Washington Post, The PBS Newshour and various local NPR stations.
I found Andy to be dedicated, creative and persistent in his efforts to secure press on “Gay In America” (Welcome Books/Random House). To this day, nearly two years later, he continues to seek press opportunities for the book.
In a very short period of time Popular Publicity generated more press and publicity for me than any effort made on my behalf in my 20+ year career. As a result I have seen a greater influx of business and potential business come my way, which in the end, was the desired result. And on top of all that Andy is the consummate professional, easy to work with and seemed to have an endless supply of clever ways to create media interest in me.
I have been working closely with the MGA publicist, Andy Reynolds on getting coverage throughout the State of Arizona. To date, we have been featured in our largest online newspaper, one of Phoenix’s largest new stations and several other medium size publications. If you all haven’t yet utilized Andy, I encourage you to do so!
Andy – you have really done a great job, and may I just say again you’re my favorite publicist I’ve worked with this year!
Andy coordinated a very successful book tour to six hospitals across the U.S. He tenaciously pitched, sought press opportunities and followed-up from six months prior to the book’s release to eight months post-release, ultimately securing a combined publicity reach of nearly 103 million (circulation + impressions).
